  1. 1 (12 1/3-ounce) package reduced-fat silken tofu (1-1/2 cups)

  2. 3 ounces good-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), finely chopped

  3. 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  4. 1/4 cup boiling water

  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  6. 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

  7. 2/3 cup confectioners' sugar

  8. 2/3 cup (3 ounces) chocolate wafer crumbs (see Notes)

Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Puree tofu in a food processor, scraping down the sides as needed, until completely smooth.

  2. Combine chocolate and cocoa in a medium bowl. Add boiling water and stir with a wooden spoon until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla and orange zest. Mix in confectioners' sugar, a little at a time, until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture to the processor; puree until smooth and well blended, scraping down the sides as needed. (To make wafer crumbs: Place wafers in a ziplock plastic bag, seal and crush with a rolling pin. Alternatively, pulse wafers in a food processor.)

  3. Spoon about 2 teaspoons chocolate crumbs into each of 5 parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Add about 1/4 cup mousse, then layer with another 2 teaspoons crumbs. Top with another 1/4 cup mousse and finish with a sprinkling of crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  4. Makes 5 servings, about 1/2 cup each.

  5. Nutritional Note:

  6. Many commercial cookies and wafers contain partially hydrogenated oil, a source of trans-fatty acids. Fortunately, brands made without these oils, such as Newman's Own Organics and Mi-Del, are every bit as tasty. Look for them in the natural foods section of large supermarkets.
